Agile Project Management requires some additional skills to be possessed by an Agile Project Manager. It does not only involve managerial skills but also requires more team-oriented and leadership skills. Agile Development is a value-driven model with focus on outcomes unlike traditional approaches which are plan-driven in nature and based on output.

Overview of Information Security for New and Non-IT Project Managers

white paper
by Rubaiyyaat Aakbar

Information security is all about protection of information and its critical elements (confidentiality, integrity and availability), including the systems and process that use, store and transmit that information. When it comes to information security, what exactly does it mean to us as project managers? This author helps you put the right procedures in place.

Time Management for New PMs: A Balancing Act

by Andy Jordan

Chaos loves a vacuum. New project managers often struggle with managing their time. That leads to things getting missed—and disaster will soon follow.

Finding a Voice in the Company as a Junior PM

by Stephanie Jaeger

Many new or young PMs seem to have no real influence given where they sit in the company hierarchy. However, as a project manager you are a leader and can have influence. You do not need a senior management title!

Same Project, Different Perspectives

by Andy Jordan

Different stakeholders often have such different perspectives, it’s like they’re involved in different projects. Is that a problem for you as the project manager? A three-step approach can help you deal with this situation.

No, You Don’t Have the Best Team—Deal With It!

by Andy Jordan

As a new project manager, you are unlikely to be surrounded by the best resources available. There’s a good reason for that, and it’s not an excuse for not delivering.

Are Templates Harming Your Project?

by Kimberly McCoy

We all know how templates can help us in our jobs. But have you ever considered that your templates could be harming your project? You have to adapt each one, as they are not one-size-fits-all solutions. Here are four things to keep in mind to ensure your templates aren't dragging you down.

Guessing Is Not Estimating

by Andy Jordan

Project plans are still being built based on guesswork, and those plans and associated schedules become “locked” as the deadline the project must deliver against and the number of people needed to do the work. As a project manager, you must avoid falling into that trap.

Team Member to Team Lead: What's the Difference?

by Andy Jordan

Being asked to lead your first project can be exciting—and overwhelming. But in practical terms, moving from being part of a project team to leading that team isn’t the major shift that project managers often treat it as.

Effective Team Member Relationships

by Andy Jordan

Project managers only succeed when their teams succeed, but what does that mean for how the PM manages relationships with individual team members? Read about the biggest mistake that new project managers make.

Covering Things up Is Never the Right Approach

by Andy Jordan

Project managers sometimes feel they have to hide problems or challenges. That is never the right approach. When project managers try to mask or hide issues, they expose the project to a number of additional risks.

What Is a Quality Project Manager?

by Bruce Garrod

Although it’s true that not every attribute can be quantitatively measured, leveraging PMI’s three processes makes sense when defining a quality project manager.

A Quality Primer

by Andy Jordan

One area where new project managers seem to struggle is quality management. Let’s go back to basics and look at the foundations of quality (which will also be a useful refresher for everyone!).

The Importance of ‘Why’

by Andy Jordan

PMs should be consciously thinking about whether they need to adjust the approach for the unique situation they are facing. New PMs don’t have the experience to know when they need to make those adjustments; to figure that out they need to continuously be asking “Why?”

How to Understand Your Team

by Andy Jordan

New project managers won’t have as much familiarity with their team members. How do they overcome that and set themselves up for success?

Why 'Percent Complete' Is Never a Measure of Progress

by Andy Jordan

Project managers live and die by the performance of projects against their schedule, yet many of them don’t know how to measure that performance. To truly understand what’s going on with their projects, it’s important for new PMs to avoid falling into the “percent complete” trap in the first place.

Dealing With a Runaway Team

by Andy Jordan

When the team seems to be working on a different plan than the project manager, what’s going on? And what needs to be done about it? A challenge for new project managers is figuring out the reasons and correcting things.

Topic Teasers Vol. 118: What Can I Do Quickly?

by Barbee Davis, MA, PHR, PMP, PMI-ACP, PMI-PBA

Question: I seem like I am constantly facing problems that have no easy or ideal solutions. Since I work in an environment with only myself as a project manager, I have no colleagues I can ask for advice. How can I stop second-guessing myself regarding whether or not I am making good decisions for how to move forward in bad situations?
